Just seen saturn tonight with 130mm newt and 9mm ep. It was awesome! Almost looks unreal with the pronounced rings.

Have 2x Barlow and new plossl 35 and 9mm eyepeices coming can't wait. Are there any deep space objects that are viewable with 130mm newt? I looked at I believe m35 an open cluster tonight but not really sure at what I'm supposed to see, it's was a group of stars from I what I seen with a 25mm.

Happy gazing!

Had my first viewing of Saturn last year with a 40 year old newtonian. Have moved on in the scope department since then, but you never forget your first sighting of Saturn. It was a very memorable moment for me.........

Have to agree, everytime I view Saturn I get the 'wow' feeling.
